Your mechanic could be messing with you. I would recommend making sure that he actually changing parts by asking for the old parts when he does such a replacement.

Buy anything else is right... my friend bought one new in 2002, and it was sold to the junkyard for scrap in 2006. Never have I seen a car deteriorate in such quick time; the engine blew before it even had a chance to rust!
DO NOT BUY A KIA!

All's good and well, but how do you know the part returned to you is the actual part off of YOUR car?
